The No. 1 CBS daytime drama, The Young and The Restless, is the latest TV show that has been impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. Last week, as Digital Journal reported, General Hospital halted its production until April 10.
Due to the global health crisis and new restrictions by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, The Young and The Restless is suspending its production. This shutdown takes place starting on Tuesday, March 17, especially since the show is dark on Mondays. As of now, the suspension of the show's filming is for two weeks.
